Smartmatches flagged incorrectly as Private

I understand that the system is set to hide the details of individuals who are still alive.

 

However, I often encounter issues where someone who was born in the 1700s has their parents, siblings or children flagged as "private" because the default for all individuals is that they are alive unless marked deceased.

 

Can we implement a filter that automatically flags any individual who is more than 150 years old as deceased (the exact threshold need not be exactly 150 ... but you know what I mean).

This would enable us to research families using the smart match feature even where individuals have forgotten to flag their long dead ancestors as dead.

I agree because this causes extra time to get the details. This also effect pending smart match confirmation. It will be wrong to confirm a smart match if not all the information to verify it is hidden as <private> Pending smart matches should reveal all information even if a person is alive because someone wants your confirmation to get a correct match I found a lot of confirmed matches that is wrong. Some people will just click "confirm all" because they don't have al the details Maybe there should be a filter to block info for those countries that don’t allow idetails of individuals who are still alive. This is really a time consuming bug

Hi Wynard and Comrac,

Thank you so much for thinking this through, it's a really good suggestion and I'll be sure to forward it to our developers.

If you have any other ideas we would be more than glad to hear.
